Wednesday's Featured Cards

Wednesday, July 13, 2016
The cards I want to show you today not only feature a lovely embossing folder and dies, but also a wonderful swirl, and beaded flourish that card designer Joan Morrison uses tastefully to embellish her cards and give them that special "flair".  They are a great staple to have in your stash of dies when you need that special something to finish or enhance your cards.


I absolutely love the embossed and cut-out detail at the bottom  of
 this card achieved by using the Marianne die Anja's Arch Border
And although beautifully adorned with the PoppyStamp Blooming Poinsettia
the Sue Wilson Splendid Swirls in the background just accent
the card perfectly.

This card just makes me happy looking at it!  Although it
looks almost orange in the picture, it is actually a lovely pink
and bright white.  Joan cut 2 panels of pink print paper and
mounted them on slightly larger white panels. The center
features Sue Wilson's Australian Collection Melbourne die.
Then she added the wonderful Beaded Swirl Flourish which 
lends itself to be embellished in so many ways...glitter,
rhinestones or adhesive pearls as Joan used here.
The fancy floral used here is the Cheery Lynn Gardenia
which is so easy to shape and assemble.  Lovely!!

The spectacular Contemporary Poinsettia embossing folder was
used as the background for this Christmas card. Joan strategically
filled the recessed impressions using Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles
glitter glue in Gold. The precision tip made this possible.  WOW!!
Again, see how beautiful the Beaded Swirl Flourish is used this
time in shiny gold cardstock topped with the PoppyStamp Blooming
Poinsettia die.
